The Best Writers and their Best Works, Part 2: 1871-Present

I collected over a dozen lists of the best writers and authors of all time and compiled them into one meta-list.  The resulting list (comprising two parts) includes every writer found on two or more of the original source lists, organized chronologically by author’s date of birth. The first line of each author entry includes the writer’s name, birth and death dates, the country or countries in which he or she worked, the language(s) in which he or she wrote, and the number of original source lists the writer.  Beneath the first line of each entry is a list (organized chronologically) of the writer’s most highly regarded literary works.  (I hope to complete illustrating the list with author portraits at some point in the future.)  The list below (Part 2) includes authors who were born after 1870 CE.  For authors born 1870 and earlier and after, see Best Writers and their Best Works, Part 1: 800 BCE – 1870.
